the property that we're talking about. my concern is turning the property into restaurant use and with all the nuisance that goes along with, that the machine noise from the restaurants, loud music, loud voices, public urination, et cetera. we already have a very large density of restaurants and bars in the area. i would like to understand what is to stop the rest of the building from falling into restaurant use, if this changes? if ever the castro country club should leave, there is a space there with the backyard patio space, that if that ever turned into a restaurant the quality of my neighbors and my building would be compromised such that we would have to move and sell your properties. we made a choice to live in an urban areas with all the benefits and problems that go with that. my boys go to sleep every night with the hum of the restaurant machines and disco beat from the bars and restaurants and we're fine with the existing level of if any place, but we don't want anymore. the existing restaurant is already encroaching on existing space and they are in violation and out of permi
will be used. they can work out the proportion of how the funding will be done mutually to the mutual satisfaction. i don't want to get involved in the economics of it. there will be no possible feeling that things are not objective if it is just being paid by or prove but one side. i think the entertainment commission will sign off too. >>: commissioners on that motion to continue to april 11 for either mutually agreed upon sound engineer analysis or independent sound analysis and proportion of cost sharing from the entertainment commission to determine maximal levels of noise. >> commissioner antonini: aye >> commissioner borden: aye >> commissioner hillis: aye >> commissioner moore: aye >> commissioner sugaya: something else came to mind, my other comment on frequencies. it seems that mr. saltar, i have a quick question. i forget your name. i'm sorry. you guys can come up. is there a way to take into consideration the type of sound transmission, phase in, high-end, that kind of thing where you are sitting in the theater you may not hear the tweeter part but you might hear the
don't think the other one will be for us if this passes. since most of their business is delivery, if you have them closer to each other, you can have drivers driving less distance, burning up less gas and generally be a little bit more favorable to the environment, if you are not going further distances to deliver pizza. also, it is nice to have something that is walkable in a neighborhood. a lot of times you come home and want to get a quick bite and you don't want to have to move your car again or take a bus to get something to eat. you just want to get some food and go home and there are quite a few residences in this area. a lot of parking lot apartment buildings and condos and they mentioned they are getting a higher percentage of walkout traffic in addition to just delivery. it's replacing an existing eating and drinking establishment. that the present owner testified that his price point was too high to be successful. and you know, it just wasn't going to work. so either have a vacant place or you will have this. and finally, local owner, local hire. those things work f
. but it is not an eating establishment. we approved an accessory use to a bookstore with limited seating. how the staff can find that this place is not in violation is beyond me. all you have to do is look at the repairs packet and the photos. there is not one book in the entire store at least in this photo. there are on the first floor five tables when the conditional use says two. it's limited to 15 seats; there are more seats than 15. how the staff does not consider this is in violation is beyond me. i cannot see how we can consider this without them first issued an nov and go through the process. also the north beach neighborhood commercial district, section 7221 of the code specifically says, special controls are necessary because in over concentration a food service establishments limits retail sales and personal services in an area that needs them to thrive the neighborhood. needs to maintain neighborhood retail sales and personal services to maintain residential livability. additional eating and drinking establishments are prohibited in spaces occupied by neighborhood services involved in
work done would you tell us a permit. >> good evening. this is my first time to remodel the house. i hired a contractor. and i followed his instructions and i didn't know he didn't get a permit. right now i already got the building permit and i'm looking for the electricity and the plumbing contractors so i can get those two permits to fix the property. so i hope you can reduce the penalty for me so i can have more resources to work on though fix this problem. thank you. >> excuse me. did you say you are looking for a replacement contractor? >> yes. >> how are you going to do whether or not the new contractor is able to file the appropriate permits? >> i already asked for recommendations and they are still looking for the proper ones. i haven't gotten one yet, but pretty soon i'm going to have one. >> okay. thank you. >> thanks >> mr. duffy? . good evening commissioners. congratulations on the new appointments. >> thank you. >> on this case we received a complaint that -- the department received a complaint on the 9th of october, 2012, remodeling done without permit. we
at night than at 5 p.m. >>: item a4 2012.0822 1865 post street, request for conditional use authorization. >>: my name is christina moreno planning department staff. the item is a request for a conditional use authorization at the property on one eight six five post street. approximately 5000 square feet. the project would have live amplified music. the project sponsor was granted a limited live performance llp from their tenant commission on july 25th. it allows for a live performance in an establishment whose primary use is not live music. additional conditions were added to the llp that limited amplified levels and sound system operation. in the august 16 hearing the planning commission continued the case to september 13 to allow the property to address concerns. from december 6 to feb. 7 the event was continued. sound inspection was conducted on oct. 18 by the inspector from the entertainment commission. some test indicating that a bona fide sound at 78 decibels was not audible; is limited to 74 decibels. at this level no on the five down should be heard in the adjacent businesses.
in the community-based on the parents teaching us to be involved in the community. i have seen quite a number of businesses across the street at the address in question, 1865 post street. when i noticed that pa'ina was being built i took a special interest and i continued to observe and watch. i was impressed. i found out that jim knew my mother and father and worked at a plumbing store, and i used to go there as a little girl to get my nuts and bolts and always had long conversations with jim. that gave inspiration to go in. i met everybody. i was totally impressed to see that it was gutted out from post to gary street, unbelievable. the work done in design and displays not to mention the lighting, structure, set up, stage entrance to the front door, , harmony that is there. menu, restaurant, the food, entertainment everything impressed me. my brother is a jazz musician that has played all over san francisco and all over filmore. i asked how can i help. i gathered community bands from the farmers market; i asked if i could bring the bands in, i did a series of jazz sessions; the music wa
anywhere from $2000 to $2500. conditional use takes more time and is more expensive. several departments must weigh in. the planning department, department of hotels, building, electrical, fire, police, noise inspection plus a 30 day posted notice, the application that comes in advance to the public hearing at city hall. and outreach to the neighbors of any particular venue. before i focus on the planning part i will focus on the other departments going back to the health and safety purpose of the whole process. who want to be safe, the food, fire hazards, occupancy. all the inspections that building, electrical, fire, all are pass/fail. if there is something to have to correct they must correct it before they get a permit. to propose specific things the commission can accept or demand. the planning role starts from the very beginning. i will switch to be overhead. you have this on your desk. you don't have to look at the screen. so, this map of san francisco shows where place of entertainment permits are allowed. beiged areas are not allowed. because the map is the way does the fi
could be three-block faces as in this case. and it's used multiple times in the public works code. amid the block face where the star is. and all of these businesses did not receive notice. so dpw testified a couple of months ago that 101 2nd street is within a 300' radius. i want to ask dpw did anyone at 101 2nd street receive notice? if they did not, notice was not served properly. the second point is the 300' radius. the ordinance use the word "radius." the order itself says there are no like foods within a 300' radius. radius is the proper measurement and dpw is going to get up here and say oh, no, we're going use walking distance and we can't determine what a 300' radius, when they are required to send out a notice to businesses within a 300' radius. they know all the businesses within that 300' radius and they are going to get up here and say i don't know what businesses are within a 300' rayus? that is just crock. and third, the starbucks objection. starbucks objected and dpw says hey, if starbucks would have objected we would have denied the permit. i don't see how you got ar
being cost effective. using the pagoda as central subway corporation yard if you will, raise the building, put a shaft down, is fraught with instruction problems due to the water flow problem in the basement pointed out by letter from sav e muni. there are lower cost alternatives. unless this information we don't know about % leave the tunnel-boring machines buried, under the pagoda theatre or extract them from the chinatown station. extracting them or burying them at chinatown would save 80 million dollars. by doing that it would not impact the people, residents, businesses of north beach. when you consider the use of this building for an extraction site it should be denied. i think it is an expensive project. it is disruptive. there are a lot better alternatives. thank you for your time. >>: and if further general public comment? seeing none general public comment is closed. >>: this will place you under your regular calendar. items 10 a-c have been continued to feb. 14. items 4 and 5 have been pulled. >>: request from commissioner antonini. >> commissioner antonini:
of decision. 4, there is no bathroom for use. you can't handle money and food. that is part of the health code. it's a health hazard not to have a hand washing simpbetween cashiering and foodservice. the map show twos coffee vendors. subito admitted major disclosures and misled the city. the mobile food facility says the permit is valid om if the applicant has not misrepresented facts. >> jim patrick -- three things the bathroom, parking and side door on the truck. the bathroom has not been approved by the owner of the building as specifically sets out in the regulations in the law. the bathroom is not 200' from where the truck is. in fact, it's about a block and a half. you have to go half a block across the street and north half a block and up the stairs and back in the mezzanine and i viewed it today and i can tell you it's quite a ways. and there is no handicap path of travel to the bathroom, which is required. no way can the customers use it or the employees use it. no. 2 is parking. it's taking the last two spaces in this whole large two and a half block area of downtown. no parking.
i think both of us really believe the death penalty is wrong, and is flawed for many reasons. the list is as long as my arm -- about several others. we feel this is important for both of us, personally, to participate in the debate of this issue in a way that we can help people frame it for a conversation. -- i like to take roll. >> commissioner antonini: here >> commissioner hillis: here >> commissioner sugaya: here >> commissioner moore: here. >> commissioner borden: here. >>: item 1, 2013.0029x, at 222 2nd street, request for determination of compliance, request for continuance. we have received late request for continued items 10 a, b & c. for case -- the requested data continuances to february 14. i have no other items. i have no speaker cards for matters propose for continuance. i do have speaker card for items on 1741 powell. >> president fong: public comments on items proposed for continuance. >>: good afternoon president fong, commissioners. we did make this request for continuance as a sponsor of this special district use legislation. very briefly i did want to sta
of us work hard to get through prop c. we are the first folks to come to you and we need this approval. we don't have a project if we don't have this approval. we will start this project in the next two weeks if we get the approval. that's it. 12 minutes. not a very good presentation, i apologize. >>: calling for public comment. i have one speaker card. paula richard. >>: good afternoon. i am paula richard. i work with plant construction. i have been at plant for about 13 years, construction manager and vice president on this project if there is a project. i was asked to take a minute and reiterate what is in my letter. we bid out all of the subcontract work, probably 50 subcontractors ready to go as well once the project goes forward. if you're not familiar with plant construction we want to point out a couple of things. we are a san francisco company company, we been here for 65 years. of the next 26 months there will 521,000 man hours translated in the range of 125 people average per day and up to 200 workers at the peak. if you have any questions i will be glad to answer th
getting to a place where we can get the maximum amount of community benefit we need. this gets us to a place we have 51% renewable generation in the city. that is amazing. we should look at that and wow how they doing that and still competitive with pg&e rates? and i think it's different from the enabling legislation for the contract it's hard to wrap our heads around t i was happy to hear ms. miller to come up with solutions and look at other things and this is a larger program and looking at others to come up with a solution is a great idea but i would like to hear more things like that from lafco. i think it's the role of the agency to serve as the positive, to move the paths between complicated and sometimes opposite opinions and i know it's challenging and we need to rely on puc for experts on the program but there is value what we're paying local power to do and i think it's a way to get beyond the arguments this is just doubling the rates. this say program for people that can afford to pay the premium cost. the work is innovative and i am start to appreciate looking at
in and people no longer using these small microscopes, but they are looking at 3 d technology from auto def and we are looking at cells in three different ways, four different ways, expanding, deepening, all of the science, this is the movement that we have, and this is our new economy and this is the collaboration that is going on and we have a lot to celebrate in our city, whether it is the giants hopefully the 9ers. i would say that it is the people but we keep having cake for very good reasons we, have the talent that is here and ucsan francisco is a great core to attract this and we are inviting others in the world to establish their headquarters here. we are no longer satisfied just being a regional leader here. it is world innovation talent that we are drawing here to san francisco and we are glad to do it and support it with uc san francisco. thank you very much and and congratulations to everybody. [ applause ] >> thank you, mayor, lee. you heard lieutenant governor mention qb 3. the quantitative biology work and the great work of reg kelley. so now i want to introduce former gover
a terrific job for us coordinating this that the system isn't exactly accurate as there is no state registry for hand guns. and, so, it's only the hard file custodian of records for assault rifles that is really, really rock solid here in california. so, but as best we can, we follow-up on every lead that we get from the department of justice. and then i have captain o'leary who did a great job last week providing us with those numbers as far as officers, calls for service and we'll be comparing that one page that i promised you related to how we're doing with occ complaints in force in the police department versus actions taken. so, with that, i'm going to go to the next thing, which would be the officer involved shooting presentation solicited by commissioner chan, which will be sergeant krudo and his team. >> if i could just give a little intro here so i can explain why i asked for this. commissioner carmen and myself were meeting on this and asked for this early last fall, i believe. and the idea thats as we had our officer involved shooting process and the firearm discharge review proce
would be using two of the four on the entire block. i have customers, many of them walk, but some of them drive. there are deliveris that happen all day. i don't feel it's the right use of city parking to be giving two of them away for the four hours each week. thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening my name is khalifed ramadan. my and a half and i own sunrise deli at 54 2nd street. i signed and allowed expresso subito and gary and his employees to use our restroom. on the overhead, the location, our location is here. his truck is proposed at 84 2nd street. the reason i signed allowing him to use our restroom facility, we support small businesses, all small businesses no matter the shape or the size. and i don't think starbucks really needs our help. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good evening my name is robin gross. i am an event planner and i'm in and out of downtown all the time. one of the reasons this is of interest to me is that as we know, the lines in the coffee shops as was spoken before are quite long. one of the issues t
but it will take us to december of december 18 to get to full staffing. so, i think you know, last year with the mayor's help we were able to get a lot of money to get up to full staffing. but as you can see, what would have happened, the purple line indicates what would have happened had we not been funded for all these academy classes. so, you can see that there was a recognition by the mayor's office as well as others that we really did need to hire. it's also interesting to note that this summer in june of 13 we will be at 1644 is a pretty low number. so, the good news is that the hiring plan is going very well. we've been able to recruit a lot of people. so, our goal for each year is 150 recruits. and the 30 that you see in 2012-13 are additional 30 positionses that the airport is funding. so far we've hired 110 people and they're in process. we've had a class of laterals and two full academy classes. we plan to hire 20 laterals in april and another 50 recruits in may. and our recivilianization plan, essentially the concept is that throughout the years we have lost civilian positio
perspective, there are no other tools, right? >> your example, so it's clear to everyone, is use the bucket man. >> right. >> and a bucket is not an amplified instrument. >> right. >> therefore, that person, even if he or she walked into our office and asked for a permit, we don't have one for performing on the street. and, in fact, jocelyn and crystal and raj, we all get calls and e-mails and walk into all [speaker not understood] street performers, walking in and asking if they can have a permit. and we let them know, please follow the law. don't block the sidewalk. don't disturb the peace. but we don't have a permit for you. my understanding is in the past there have been attempts to try to corral behavior or create some sort of registry or something, but from the perspective of the city attorney's office who can speak for themselves if they were here, but they expressed it is very difficult to write a regulation that captures all of the bad behavior and regulates it without affecting the first amendment. i mean, and we're not -- >> right. >> we're not immune to this either at city hall.
the ta did an excellent job and really showing us the big picture. the other thing i wanted to do was to thank the department for their work with the chinatown flower festival. it was last weekend and it was a fabulous event. there was some moments of nervous us in that we knew we were going to get the [speaker not understood] for the flower festival. department did a great job in that [speaker not understood]. thank you very much. >> thank you. director burgess. [speaker not understood]. >> i just wanted to offer my congratulations to chairman nolan for being reappointed by mayor lee to serve another term on the mta board and continue to serve as our chairman. i know we're all looking forward to another four-year. >> are you speaking of everybody here, four more years? >> i think i can safely speak on behalf of everyone. [laughter] >> thank you, it was very gracious, very kind. okay, -- director regis. >> yes. very quickly i, too, would like to join chairman nolan in thanking the staff for a great workshop on last week. it was phenomenal. but the other thing i would like to do an
on, important for us to hear a vision. i am curious to know if there is anything that you could add to your statement as to how you heard about this vacancy and why you're applying. >>> i was here, i think it was october, and i gave a very similar testimony. and i don't remember, someone told me about it and said, you should go down and apply. we were talking last year sometime. and i was here in november when you had a meeting here then. i'm sorry, your second question? >> the second question is -- >>> what more could i do to help veterans? well, when i was at [speaker not understood] community center and putting people to work in the construction apprenticeship program, i would work a lot with the state division apprenticeship standards which monitors what apprenticeship programs do in the state of california. one of the things they told me was they said why don't you just focus on the construction trades when there's over 400 apprenticeship programs in the state of california that's been approved and bonded by the state division of apprenticeship standards. i'm like my own boss.
. and we use the cars in this case. our chief investigator rolls out to every officer involved shooting and, so, the chief investigator has a car 24/7. the rest of the investigators rely on one -- the other car, and that car is used or the investigators to go out in field and also for our support staff to make deliveries and pick up deliveries from the hall of justice. so, in conclusion, without a budget augmentation for staff and replacing two object -- obsolete cars t would affect the effectiveness and efficiency of the office of com platev. and that conclude my report. >> thank you very much, commissioner de jesus. >> you're going to have to bear with me. i'm not really great at numbers. some numbers are jumping out at me. on page 2, it says on the first paragraph that with 16 investigators, the caseload would be 19 cases. but the occ is referring to fulfilling 17 of the investigators, i came up with 15. >> we do have 15 now. >> all right. and the question is how long have you had 15 or 16 or whatever it is? >> how long have we had -- >> yes, how long has it been vacant? you said you ha
that are there. your sound person and their sound person need to figure it out you don't want us to do that because you will not like the outcome. i support the continuance. and come back with something that works for everybody. >> president fong: public comment is all finished. thank you. commissioner borden. >> commissioner borden: i've been to pa'ina loung. the food is great, the entertainment is great. i've been to kabuki also, it's great. we really want to be able to support all the businesses but we need the support all businesses. there needs to be a sound study, a couple of different determinations. seeing it would level the sound bleeds; turning it up to see a what point it bleeds, gives us a base line. also having one sound report. i am not a sound expert. i do know what is too loud. we want to support pa'ina loung and all existing businesses; we don't want to support pa'ina at the expense of the ot her businesses especially when you had a citation not to long ago. we need to get to the bottom of the soundproofing issue before we can move to the next step. what you are hear
findings to come to a consensus regarding whether the use of lethal force was in policy, not in policy, or whether further investigation is required. and then the chair, which is again will look at the members of it, the d.c. admin will report the findings to the chief. the board is composed of the deputy chief administration who chairses it, the dc of operations, d.c. of special operations, excuse me, and the d.c. of the airport. and advisory members would be the police -- a police commissioner, the director of occ, the commanding officer of risk management, and the sfpd range master. the findings, as i mentioned before, the chief who reviews them. and if he concurses with the finding, the chief will work the recommendation of the fdrb to the police commission. if the chief does not concur, he would forward his own findings to the police commission. the way that is presented to the police commission is in writing. you've seen the fdrb letters. it's letter format, but it's in writing. it summarizes all the different components of the administrative -- administrative investigation, the
of us object strongly to the pagoda palace location. really promised it would be presented to the chinatown option, option number 2 apparently was never presented to you or it was presented to you with the built-in instructions how to vote. i would like to say the chinatown option explore the extraction boring machines. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> gregory geiber followed by lance carnes. >> good afternoon. >>> good afternoon. thank you for allowing me to talk. i'm relatively new to san francisco. i went to school here. i spent my life in new york city and know how long a subway project can take from start to completion. when i arrived in new york city in the '70s, the subway was being planned. i hope to get there sometime before i eventually die and it might be completed. these things take a long time. when people favor the pagoda theater, it seemed to be an a versus b assumption. there were no alternative to the chinatown that it seemed to be you want union street or you want the pagoda theater. with little consideration being given to other alternati
in writing today. it's been very hectic for us and we do want to get right to the permits because we have a long agendaedthv we just wanted to update you quickly. [speaker not understood] the piece of the legislation. i spoke previously about a piece of legislation introduced last year by supervisor chiu regarding polk street and the creation of the new alcohol use district. and, so, there's been a lot of conversation. there was a meeting at the small business commission and at committee level. i attended a meeting today in supervisor chiu's office to mike changes and amendments to that. so, it continues to morph in different ways and we'll keep the commission updated. i still do have a request in to amy chin from the supervisor's office to address you and i guess they feel it's in a place where it may move ahead. there's just a lot of changes to it so it's still happening. we will have a chance to weigh in on that. i wanted to remind the commission, i'm not sure if i told you this or not before. for sometime in over -- pretty much all through 2010, we were -- the commission was addressin
to san franciscans. but it's especially heartwarming to us to be able to collaborate and to bring housing and services together and the collaboration between mercy housing and st. anthony's. we would like to thank banc of america, who was our capital partner in the new markets program and again, we're simply thrilled to be part of this. it speaks perfectly to the vision that many of us share for how to move families and communities forward. i have to say that i for one, if this is what the groundbreaking is like, i am incredibly excited to go to the grand opening celebration. thank you all. [ applause ] >> thank you, nancy. i would like to make sure that we thank the staff of st. anthony's, who is here in force today. raise your hands and thank them. [ applause ] a couple of other grantors to st. anthony's, thanking jack fitzpatrick, who is here. stephanie and the koretfolks that have already been mentioned. we're actually going to do a groundbreaking. so i would ask those involved on that, that is everybody on the stage pretty much to start moving into the pit. so if you can stand up
. >> commissioner [speaker not understood]? >> here. >> mr. president, you have a quorum and also with us this evening is the chief of police gregory p. sur and the director of the office of citizens complaints joyce higgs. >> thank you very much. welcome to the february 6, 2013 san francisco police commission meeting. we have an agenda tonight with the presentation regarding our officer involved shooting protocol and investigations. and we have no disciplinary matters or personnel matters so it should be relatively smooth agenda. so, please call line item number 1. >> line item 1, general public comment. the public is now welcome to address the commission regarding item that do not appear on tonight's agenda but that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the commission. speakers shall address their remarks to the commission as a whole and not to individual commissioners or department or occ personnel. under police commission rules of order, during public comment, neither police nor occ personnel, nor commissioners are required to respond to questions presented by the public, but
now, but people said they would write letters for us. and we've been in business there 10 years already. it's not like we're opening a new business or trying to start something. she's been there for 10 years at dimples and eight years at pagoda. so, it's been an ongoing business and we have a good relationship with the other tenants and the neighbors. >> these two items, doing business or they're just coming into compliance, is that it? >> you might find this a lot around -- >> karaoke? >> tend to spiral out, japantown phase. you notice in the last few months. they also seem to be in a bit of outer mission side. >> that's true, karaoke places in general. >> not karaoke, permits in general. >> coming into compliance. okay, thank you. anything further, commissioner hyde? >> no. i mean, it does help that i know now that they've been in business for 10 years. >> any other commissioners? a motion? >> i motion to approve. >> we have a motion. do we have a eked >> second. >> is that with the amended condition included? >> amended condition? >> opening, closing, good neighborhood policy
. so, this allowed us to not only put on a great sell braaetionverctiontion, but to also fundamentally change the experience that the 10 million visitors a year who come to the golden gate bridge have. if you've been out there, we've built a 3500 square foot pavilion. it's a visitors pavilion and welcoming center. there are interpretive panels and photographs and videos that you can see there and merchandise that tell you a lot about the golden gate bridge. and we have some artifacts in that pavilion that have never been seen before by the public. so people now can actually get a sense of their rich history of the golden gate bridge and how it was built and the men and women in labor who built that bridge. and, so, it's really fantastic. we also improve the outdoor plaza area so there's more open space. we improve the pedestrian and bicycle path. so, really it's a much more pleasant place to visit now so we're really, really proud of that. on the fiscal side of things at the district, it has been a difficult time, as with any governmental quasi-governmental agency. but in 2009 the boar
of reserves that are going to be used here my understanding is there is some flexibility in how much is recoupd and depending how you use that flexibility that could impact rates so i am wondering if you could say something about that and what the thinking is around that issue? >> yes. you will recall when the board considered the program in august the board directed us to -- i can't quote the language, but the basic message was to the extent feasible let's try and recover the dedicated funds. excuse me. what we presented as staff to the rate fairness board was full recovery of all of the funds during the first four and a half years of the program. of course the quicker you recover those funds the more a rate bump it has on the program, so the board dialogue has been around can we extend out how long we give ourselves to recover those funds? and i think under the adopted board direction, yes we can, and then the issue is. okay. if we want to by how much? and those are some of the questions we're addressing with the rate fairness board and we will present it to our commission s
